The Board discussed Drainage District #1 repairs for a lateral tile. Rolando commented that Secondary Roads completed work per work order #986 for $1,151.86 but another issue has come up that is too large for Secondary Roads to fix. The Board would like Rolando to get an estimate for the new issue. The Auditor reported that there are outstanding spread assessments from previous work and once collected the fund balance is sufficient to carry the claim. The Board does not intend to assess property owners at this time.

The 170th St bridge crew will move to the 195th St bridge when 170th St bridge is finished. Crews continue to spot rock and blade roads. Patching work on Underwood should be done soon; this came in more than twice than what was estimated. T38 opens today. The new compactor at the Collection Site is set up and running.
